Seabank Hotel and Alfa Travel owned company exchanged contracts to purchase a new hotel ...

Stunning new destination unveiled for Alfa Travel customers


 Leading coach tour operator Alfa Travel has today launched a programme of tours to the popular South Wales seaside resort of Porthcawl. The news comes as the family owned company exchanged contracts to purchase a new hotel in the resort.

 The Seabank Hotel is stunningly situated and offers breathtaking sea-views from almost all rooms. Alfa Travel will be taking over the reigns at the landmark seaside property on the 31st March and promise to offer the same quality standards currently offered at the company’s 17 existing Leisureplex Hotels.

 With two blue flag beaches in the resort, Seabank will delight guests looking for a traditional British break. Porthcawl is also one of the best resorts in the British Isles for golfers and courses include the world famous Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, often said to be the finest course in Wales. Alfa Travel guests look set to be thrilled with the wealth of exciting opportunities in the excellently situated resort. Cardiff, Swansea and the Gower and the perennially popular Tenby will all feature on

Porthcawl excursion itineraries.

Managing Director Paul Sawbridge said, “Our guests often request new tours to South Wales and we have been searching for exactly the right property for some time. We are therefore delighted to unveil new tours to Porthcawl. Alfa guests can expect the same value for money, good service and attention to detail they have come to expect in all Leisureplex Hotels.”

 Demand for Porthcawl tours is expected to be high as Alfa’s loyal guests rush to be the first to sample the exciting new destination.
